2011 Paul Cluver Sauvignon Blanc
Walker Bay, South Africa
A great example of cool climate sauvignon, with a component of oak matured Semillon. Green pepper and green fig aromas on the nose, also gooseberry and granadilla aromas. Good mid-palate richness and packed with flavor. Lovely clean, long mineral finish. Robert Parker 89pts
BTG $6.75 Retail $16.99

2009 Baileyana “Grand Firepeak” Chardonnay
Edna Valley, California
The brighter, fresher side of California Chardonnay comes through in the 2009 Chardonnay Grand Firepeak Cuvee. Clean mineral notes frame hints of lemon, crushed rocks and white flowers in this vibrant, beautifully focused Chardonnay. Robert Parker 90pts
BTG $7.75 Retail $19.99

2009 Felsina Chianti Classico
Tuscany, Italy
Shows excellent weight and depth to match its expressive dark red fruit. This is an especially open vintage for the Chianti Classico. The 2009 is probably not destined for a super long life, but will drink beautifully for at least a handful of years. Hints of earthiness and tar add to an impression of gravitas in this vintage. Robert Parker 90pts, Wine Spectator 91pts
BTG $9.75 Retail $25.99

2010 Chappellet “Cervantes” Mountain CuvĂ©e
Napa Valley, California
This is the wine to choose when you’re looking for vivid, mouth-filling fruit flavors. The wineries Mountain Cuvee is a winemaker’s blend that beautifully expresses the distinctive qualities of the traditional Bordeaux varietals, and is crafted for early consumption. Each component making up the cuvee contributes nuances that mingle with and complement each other. The result is a complex array of aromas and flavors that deliver pure pleasure in a glass.
BTG $10.50 Retail $27.99

2009 Domaine La Garrigue Vacqueyras “La Cantarelle”
Rhone, France
A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah from 80+ year old vines, boasts an inky/purple color as well as a nose of scorched earth, burning charcoal embers, blackberries, cassis, licorice and hints of truffles and charcuterie. Full-bodied, intense, thick and viscous. 93pts Robert Parker
